"Perpendicular" is a temporary, programmatic light installation that bends across Penn ave and Ninth Street, in downtown Pittsburgh. It is a location of significant importance to the artist, because it is doors away from an event that took place in 2001, "Making a Scene", where they first met and became acquainted with three of their closest friends and mentors.
Perpendicular celebrates the leaps, strides and directions that the artists work has experienced through the support of great people in a great town.
